But that wasn't to talk about "Manga" trains, it was about watching Japanese DVD and Blurays. Until now I was able to see any Japanese DVD because despite there is a region protection, Japanese and Europe shared the same. But recently I bought a Japanese BlueRay, and realized they changed the region protection zones established for DVDs, and it's not possible to see a Japanese Bluray in a non-japanese player.
Solution: hack the Bluray player installing a chip inside, what doesn't differ too much from installing a decoder in an analog locomotive!! I found RattleByte sells this kind of mod-chips for my Sony BDP-S100 player (a really cheap one). It comes the chip, thin wire, double sided tape and the instruction manual with a clear photo indicating the soldering points:
In my model it needs to solder only 6 wires:
Just two of them are complicated, one because it has to be soldered to a really tinny resistor, and the other because the access to the soldering point is not easy and the main board must be unattached.
The other 4 wires are soldered to existing tin pads.
And now my Bluray player can play DVD and Bluray from any region without problems. I hope you enjoyed it!!!
